Gorgeous, bright, 3 week young lady ladybird seeks small man ladybird for extended rendezvous in the Banksia tree on the corner. Must have at least 8 spots and enjoy aphids.
But I digress…
I love ladybirds, so I was overjoyed to find out that I have 3 trees in my garden that are the “in” places for all the hip and happening ladybirds in the neighbourhood to hang out and get jiggy with it. And when I say jiggy I mean whoa nelly! Get a room! There are children around!
Rampant sexual apetites aside, they really are utterly beautiful creatures, and most afternoons now see me out the front, camera in hand, trying to capture that perfect image.
